a mediocre two-term president. and i believe that. you know, there's a tendency in washington to think that our job description of elected officials is to get re-elected. that's not our job description. and i don't want to look back on my time here and say to myself, all i was concerned about was nurturing my own popularity. >> hey, welcome to "morning joe." we are live from chicago where last night mika and i went to a book event for her book, "all things at once" and had a great crowd out there. very cold in chicago this morning. the talk last night and the talk in washington today is going to be about president obama's state of the union address. and he's, of course, going to be delivering that tomorrow. and we've got a lot to talk about including a spending freeze that predictably has people on the far left angry and the people on the far right angry. and we'll figure out why everybody's so darn angry in a little bit. good morning. it's tuesday, january 26th. and willie, take us around the table up in new york. >> good morning, joe. i know you, too, don't want to get caught up in y
? >> couric: chip reid at the white house tonight. thank you. bob schieffer is our chief washington correspondent and anchor of "face the nation." so, bob, who was right in that last exchange about the budget: the president or the congressman >> well, actually, katie, both of them, as is usually the case here. the congressman was operating from congressional budget office numbers, the president from numbers provided by by his budget director. so they both have the stats to back up their conclusion. but the truth is that these long-range projections are worthless because no one can predict events over ten years, what wars we're going to have, disasters and so on. so no one can really know how much the government will have to spend. what they do know, though, is that spending has gone through the roof and neither side has an easy answer on how to control it. >> couric: and what do you think, bob? was this meeting a game-changer, as the white house hopes? >> you know, i thought so at first. i thought it might at least be a game-starter. there was a totally different tone than what we'v
saying he won't run in the fall either. dana bash joins us from washington. what led to senator dodd's decision not to seek re-election? >> reporter: a very, very tough re-election battle ahead, that's really the bottom line on this, john. as you know, senator chris dodd has made the united states senate his life. he's been in the senate for three decades, but he has had a series of very, very tough political battles. in connecticut, starting with the fact that he moved to iowa to run for president with his wife and his two small children, that's when connecticut voters started to turn on him, then the fact that he is the senate banking chairman and obviously wall street went south. there's been a lot of attention paid to the fact that he has close ties with the banking community. so all of those things, combined with the fact that it is just not a good potential year for democrats, made senator dodd decide finally to retire and not run again. >> so what does this mean for democrats in terms of their chances in the 2010 election? do they have a good solid candidate who could replace

correspondent pete williams joins me from our bureau in washington. an extremely fast verdict, pete. >> instantaneous, you would have to say, chris. the jury had barely been out of the courtroom for 15 minutes baf before they announced they had a verdict. what that tells you is they got into the jury room, took a quick vote and it was unanimous, as it must be. and with the quick time, the presumption is that it will be a guilty verdict. late yesterday the judge in the trial threw out the idea that his defense lawyers were pushing, throughout this trial, which was he should not be convicted of first-degree murder but a lesser charge of voluntary manslaughter, chris. >> pete, thank you very much. we appreciate it. >>> live shot there in baltimore. not sure how many people are going to be before president obama. you see him there with the republican leadership, obviously having some prayers said. we'll keep our eye on that, get you up-to-date on some other things as well, as we wait for the president to speak. he is about nine minutes early. we are, indeed, waiting for the president. t

, not leading. and tim kaine said -- let's go to john heilemann in washington, d.c. what was your reaction to the speech last night? >> you know, joe, i kind of agree with you, and in some sense with almost everything all of those people said. the speech felt to me that it had something for everybody in it, and it let me feeling like there was a little bit of a grab bag quality to it. it's an interesting window into the white house's thinking. to me, the big question about the speech going in, was it going to reflect an assessment on the white house's part on the wake of everything that's happened over the last weeks and months, that they needed to make a dramatic mid course correction? and there was nothing about the speech that suggested that was the case. a lot of talking, small adjus adjustments to the left, small adjustments to the right. i don't think you will say a year ago that that's the moment that they seized the reins and went one direction or another. and it's interesting to me, because i don't think they think they are in big trouble. >> i think you're right. but wouldn't you
